-Please email orders to .   All orders must go through this email so that we may control timeliness and accuracy of orders.  A confirmation email will be sent so that you know we have received your order.

-With current Covid restrictions, we will be setting up a pick-up station on table in the dining room. Please allow ample time for order to be completed and placed in the pick-up area.  The dining room will be opened with social distanced seating.  The fountain drink machine will be available for re-fills (only with a new cup please, to limit exposure).

-A to-go menu will be sent out with our available options.  While we will offer more options once restrictions are lifted, these choices will be evaluated and possibly changed per your feedback.

-Payment of orders will also be limited during this Covid restricted phase.  Our plan is to allocate each person’s orders into a time-frame based tally.  These tallies will be formalized into monthly invoices, so as to limit exposures of social interactions.  For example, Tim called in and received 20 lunch orders, for a total of $140, over the course of the month.   Tim will receive an email, from the view, with an invoice attached for $140.  Tim will take invoice to the Dining Hall to pay the invoice.   This payment plan option is subject to change based on availability and Covid restrictions changes.

-Our hours of operations, will be limited as well.  We will serve lunch only, from 11:00 am until 1:30 pm.  Please note these times and place your order accordingly. 

-We hope to provide the best possible product and service to you within this restrictive environment.  We ask for your patience and understanding as we progress towards normal functioning operations.  Again, please feel free to give us feedback so that we may provide better products and services.
